Subject: Summertime hasn't come and gone ... it's right here!
This is part of an incredible run of shows which arguably begins at the beginning of the month (including 6-22/PNE, for sure) and ends sometime in July (including the next two shows at this same venue).
So, more specifically here is the first show in one of the better (best?) three day (or more) stands in the band's history ... Great sound, too. Bobby and Billy are nice and clear, the way I like it.
Subject: Track 2 is Deal, Track 3 is Tuning
List is reversed - Track 2 is the song Deal. Track 3 is the tuning. Nice little snippet of a show here.

Subject: The Magnificent Seven of June 73!
It appears that June 1973 was another one of THOSE months in Dead musical history, like May 77, or May 72. Only seven shows played, but what great shows they were. The real crime is that many of them exist only in bits and pieces. But enough to prove that they were really at a peak during this portion of the summer.
That 6/10 and its "little brother" show 6/9 are legendary goes without saying. But listen to the great Dark Star>Eyes>China Doll section of 6/24 and you'll be knocked out! Sadly, that's all that's circulating right now.
Likewise, this show has a big chunk missing - most of Set One, along with the last two songs, plus a splice in Playin. But what IS here is some fantastic music. The Playin jam begins with Garcia in an introspective mood on the wah wah, then moves into a fast bebop rhythym, with Keith providing some nice Fender Rhodes backing. And the Half Step and BE Women are well delivered too. Then in Set Two, things get serious.
After a slow, slippery He's Gone, the Truckin leads to, naturally, The Other One. A very mellow and meditative opening section, with Jerry providing some melodic leads and Bobby backing him with Wes Montgomery-type chording, they sing the verse about halfway through. Then it goes to the Twilight Zone. Very spacy and strange, yet never too dissonant. Finally, a beautiful Morning Dew closes Disc Two (the rest is missing) but you certainly feel you've gotten your money's worth by this point!
Not the most inspired jamming of the year, and this SBD is a just a little muddy to my ears. But still a nice little two disc show, and deserving of a solid 3 stars.

Subject: Other One jam!
Just a brief note about an AMAZING Jam that starts out of Truckin'. This 12min jam is the goods. Jerry melts away the Truckin' theme and finds new ground based loosely on Other1. Bobby patiently starts with the 1st verse and, as usual in 1973, is never finished.
